    Default How to get rid of 'install Antivirus' section in ZoneAlarm Free 10.2.x?

    Is there any way to get rid of that annoying section that tells me that I could (but don't have yet done) install ZoneAlarm Antivirus?

    I mean, I explicitly downloaded and installed the 'firewall-only' product. I don't want to get harassed with that annoying big 'don't you wanna install antivirus as well' section that is just in the spot where the 'Computer' section was prior to 10.2, so one habitually clicks on that big button 'all the time'. Only now starting the download and installling process.

    I instantly uninstalled the 10.2.x version and went back to 10.1.101.000 because I couldn't find a way to get rid of that 'antivirus element'.
    I understand that the product is free and that they want to implement some ad. But first of all, the antivirus is also free, so they don't get any money from that. And secondly, it would be sufficient, if that Button was smaller ans somewhere else. Or in other words: The Firewall-only product would deserve it's own main gui, meaning, just the one that was there before 10.2.

    But maybe someone has good news for me and can tell how to get rid of that 'antivirus element' on the main gui screen.
